Here are my test results back from my Dr today (I am in the UK)

Haemoglobin 11.3
Red blood cell 3.84
Total white cell count 12.2
Serum folate 23.2
Serum vitamin B12 260
Serum iron level 1 umol/L
Haematocrit 0.336
Neutrophil count 9.65
Monocyte count 1.01
Eosinophil count 0

Dr just said I was slightly anaemic - I'm a bit worried about my B12 levels and also serum folate/serum iron level also? Dr said some of the results are probably abnormal because I had a virus last week? He told me to take iron supplements for 6 weeks then have a blood retest? Still feel pretty much very tired :(

Any thoughts or comments very much appreciated! :)
ok here goes re normal values for comparison

Haemoglobin 11.3 (normal for non pregnant female 12-15)
Red blood cell 3.84 (normal female 4.2-5.4)
Total white cell count 12.2 (normal approx 4-10)
Serum folate 23.2 (normally 5-16)
Serum vitamin B12 260 (normal 200-900)
Serum iron level 1 umol/L (normal 9-30.4 umol/L)
Haematocrit 0.336 (normal 0.36-0.46)
Neutrophil count 9.65 (normal 1.8-7.8)
Monocyte count 1.01 (normal 0-9)
Eosinophil count 0 (normal 0-5)
MCV 87.3 (normal 80-100)
Lymphocyte count 19.3 (normal 18-48)

I have no signs of any infection now - I do however have an ongoing dry cough which is fairly mild at the moment. It's been going on for a year or so and I also have an amount of blood in my mouth every morning - I have been referred to have an endoscopy at an ear nose & throat clinic in a few months. I also have chronic gingivitis which could possibly be causing the blood in the mouth but obviously there is a need to check this out to rule out any other problems.
